Grammys! I have loved them forever. Even when they make strange decisions with their nominees and even stranger choices with their winners, I watch. Because I want one! I love to watch the performances and see my favorite music stars (and the odd movie star) and pretend that I won an award, too. Norah Jones swept all five of her categories last night. I was surprised, but pleased. She is so talented, she deserved it. I was so happy for No Doubt! I love them, love them, love them, to bits and pieces. I wanted to cry with Gwen! See, she’s just a regular Southern Cali kid like me. Makes me all warm and fuzzy. I had a good weekend…haircut and lunch with my two best pals from the old hood, then I went down to Newport Beach for some hijinks. And hijinks were had! All I have to say is, one Lupu Lupu at the Royal Hawaiian is all a short chick like me needs. Then, of course, there were the Grammys. Good ol’ Grammys. This is a busy week for me. Mindi’s CD comes out tomorrow – go buy it! I’m going down to San Diego tomorrow to watch her perform at a Border’s Books and Music store, then going to her release party on Wednesday night. It’s going to be a great show. And, STORM OF THE CENTURY is coming! Until the next storm takes that title. I’m hoping to get home tonight before the brunt of the storm reaches me. I don’t want to get caught in the rain if I can avoid it. And, hopefully the rain will taper off before I have to drive to San Diego tomorrow. That would totally blow.
